A writ was filed to take steps to decongest the road. The High Court gave some directions in the hearing of that writ. On July 3, 2019, the court issued a 30-day notice in the newspaper and ordered the removal of illegal structures from the car parking area. Justice of writ did not comply with that instruction. Khasruzzaman and Justice Md. The High Court bench consisting of Iqbal Kabir issued this rule yesterday on Tuesday. Meanwhile, senior lawyer Manzil Morsed heard the petition in the court. Assistant Attorney General Salim Azad appeared for the state.
Later, lawyer Manzil Morsed said that although the layout plan approved by Rajuk for the construction of buildings on the side of the road in Dhaka has provision for car parking, many building owners have businesses, shops or live in the designated car parking space. Parking their cars on the street in front of the building caused serious traffic jams in Dhaka city.

Mayor of Dhaka North and Dhaka South City Corporation, chairman of Rajuk were made respondents in the writ. After the hearing of that writ, he ordered the removal of the shop or business establishment or establishment from the car parking area of the building within 6 months. Ordered to collect the cost from the owner. In the order, the defendants were also directed to maintain normal flow of traffic on the road. The court ordered to submit a progress report in that regard. Due to non-compliance of these directions of the court issued notice in favor of HRPB. The notice asked for action within seven days. But because no action was taken to resolve the traffic jam, a contempt of court complaint was filed in the High Court.
